What Came First Corn Allergy Or Gluten Free Diet Filled With Corn Additives?

9 posts in this topic

When I first went gluten free in May my only problem visible was gluten. 4 to 5 months later starts dairy problems slightly and huge corn allergy. Why would it come so late? I wonder if all the corn filled products that were gluten free kickstarted it?

Anyone else's allergy problems start quite a bit later to going gluten free?

Autumn, the problem comes from your villi healing. Before going gluten-free, your intestines weren't absorbing a lot of things, including other foods you were intolerant to. Plus, your gluten intolerance was likely much worse than the others, and the reactions to gluten sort of overshadowed the other reactions.

Now that you have started healing, your body is absorbing other nutrients again, including the ones you are intolerant to, and therefore your other intolerances are rearing their ugly heads now.

That happened to me four months after going gluten-free as well. It was very discouraging, but I am fine with it now.

Have you gotten a "gluten" diagnosis? Because it could just be corn.

Often when first going gluten-free, people cut out a lot of corn from their diet. They start eating more meats and veggies which have less corn in them, and cut down on carbs. They stop eating pre-made packaged foods which have a lot of corn in them.

Your body adjusts.. when you first went gluten-free.. your body was used to .. lets just say 80 amt of corn. When you went gluten-free, you cut it down to 40 corn. So your body went.. "PHEW relief" and stopped having such severe reactions, ignoring the less harmful 40.. because it was waiting for 80 to appear again. Then it got used to 40 being the only amt of corn and started putting its full effort into attacking it, and the reactions started up again.

People with a corn allergy often go through this process... where cutting out major doses of corn cause temporary relief, but the only lasting relief is to cut out all sources of corn.

The other theory is slightly different than the villi issue.

It has to do with leaky gut (a mechanism believed to be behind Celiac)...basically, your cells in your intestine don't seal completely, meaning certain proteins get through (noticably, gluten)....for some of us, we might have a "super" leaky gut and other proteins get through that should not. Thats obviously a simplified version, but that might be part of the picture.

hope it helps!

thanks ursula, v, and laura :)

You have given me alot to think about. I did have problems with corn allergy when I was younger. I dont really remember it, my mom told me. I was on allergy shots then and I guess outgrew it. It didnt cause stomach upset just a rash.

I havent yet recieved the enterolab results so Im not sure Im gluten intolerant except when I feel glutened it is very different than eating corn chips. Both equally yucky but I dont feel as bad as being glutened. I havent really cut down on corn since recently. I was feeling deprived when I started this way of eating and was eating all the junk food with corn in it for quite awhile. I can tell one thing is my villi I believe is starting to get healed I dont have sciatica all the time and especially with diarrhea.

I will have to read more about leaky gut. I do have stomach upset with other foods, mostly greasy stuff. I think it has to do with not having a gall bladder anymore but plan on looking it into it more. I cant handle eggs to well anymore either.

Its funny, It had become normal for me to have stomach upset and feeling yucky and I knew it was just part of myself to feel like I was 90, have my joints ache and crack, couldnt stand up straight for awhile due to back pain, diarrhea after everything I ate and steadily gaining weight. Now that I know I dont have to feel that way I cant stand the thought of feeling bad anymore and desperately want to fix it :)

Going gluten-free allowed for a great improvement in my symptoms - but didn't clear up everything. It wasn't until I got serious about the corn issue that things got better. Since I'm nearly 60 the healing time is going to be longer than you younger folks, but I know now that I cannot eat corn anymore. I find it is harder to eliminate corn (and corn derivatives) than gluten and if it weren't for the Avoiding Corn forum and the education I received there I wouldn't be doing nearly as well. That's true for this forum re: gluten.

Gluten and corn symptoms for me are very similar - D, fatigue and irritability. However, I THINK getting corned produces less severe and shorter symptoms than gluten. It's been hard for me to determine what causes what.

Im hoping I will feel so good by the time I get all the hidden corn out of my life too. Mine is alot shorter. Corn will bother me the day of and I wake up next day nauseated with a sore stomach, and sorry if tmi a sore rectum area. Even if I didnt have diarrhea from it which seems so odd.

Yeah, I had to cut out corn, too----I went wheat free before I had this celiac disease thing checked out, and I started to react more seriously when I added a lot more corn to my diet. Think: corn bread, *large* bowls of pocorn smothered in butter (sigh. how I miss popcorn!).

But I think I've always had an allergy--when I was a kid, too much corn on the cob irritated my throat. Also, icing sugar and things with corn-derived sweetener made my throat sting slightly. It got to the point where my face would turn red and hivy if I ate corn bread----the last time I tried corn I had just one kernel. Instant throat itchiness.

My allergist was a bit skeptical about a "new" allergy until he did the tests---positive skin prick test, positive RAST test. Now he wants me to avoid corn and corn-derived ingredients as much as possible!

Thanks :)

I love corn too, still I am feeling quite a bit better still not perfect although I wonder if I have hidden corn products somewhere. Im still researching. I'm not sure if its an intolerance or an allergy? I have alergy testing to be done on November 13th. Hopefully it will answer some questions. Mainly I would like to know if its just an intolerance and I just avoid the things to eat or if its an allergy and I need to check all my products for it.

Since its joint pain and aches, tiredness, severe bloating, upset stomach and the big d I am hoping its all intolerance. Years ago I reacted with rosacea getting worse from my allergy but now I dont notice that so much.

Boy I miss popcorn :(

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
    • Hi, this has been a postcode lottery for some time, some health authorities support it others don't. The govt has recently indicated that doctors should no longer prescribe food to celiacs, you should check with your local GP to see if they are still doing this or not. if you want some advice on where to shop just ask  
    • @CleoTheLeoI've learned that I have a sluggish liver and that before trying to cleanse the liver, I need to make sure that the gall bladder is clear and working well, as well as the gut, so that when the liver is detoxing, the toxic wastes have an elimination route. Dr. Lam explains so many things in detail in his articles. https://www.drlam.com/blog/sluggish-liver-and-adrenal-fatigue/7854/.
